Invisibility Cloak?

Noticed this gem on another blog. A japanese scientist claims to have invented an "Invisibility Cloak". Is it just me or does it look like he has a white jacket and a projector or what?

"The photograph was taken through a viewfinder that uses a combination of moving images taken behind the wearer to give a transparent effect."

Huh? So it's only sort-of invisible for cameras?

Thats right, its projection that creates the effect. Its not a real invisibility cloak, but it does involve some pretty bitching optics and projection imaging technology to operate. So its not as cool as that cloak in Ghost in the Shell, where the guy slips it over his head, shimmers, and disappears, but its a neat use of technology anyway. :)
